Three charged after drugs find

Three charged after drugs find

Two men and a woman arrested in Feilding following the discovery of drugs and cash have now been charged.

A police operation culminated in a search warrant being executed at a residential address in Ferndale Place, Feilding, yesterday afternoon (Monday, 22 November).

Over $40,000 was recovered, along with a small number of point bags of methamphetamine, cannabis, scales and documentation indicative of drug dealing. A large container of white powder was also recovered. At this stage it is unconfirmed whether the powder is methamphetamine or a precursor to manufacturing methamphetamine; forensic testing will be carried out.

A 26-year-old man from Northland has been charged with conspiring to supply methamphetamine, possession for supply of methamphetamine and possession for supply of cannabis.

A 45-year-old man from Feilding has been charged with conspiring to supply methamphetamine, possession for supply of methamphetamine and possession of material for manufacture of methamphetamine.

A 23-year-old woman from Hamilton has been charged with possession of cannabis, possession for supply of methamphetamine and permitting a vehicle to be used in the commission of offences against the Misuse of Drugs Act.

All three are appearing at Palmerston North District Court this afternoon.

If you have information about drug manufacture or supply, ring your local Police Station. Alternatively information can be provided anonymously via Crimestoppers on 0800 555111.
